In my work I have met many types of people. But what I find so sad and disheartening is the number of people I meet with no idea what their true passion or soul purpose is.
I too have worked in hopeless jobs which are going nowhere, which I don't enjoy, have no passion for and barely the will to go to. All just to pay a few bills.
I have met people who have no idea what their interests are, are working all the time in jobs which barely pay enough to cover their rent and bills, and they feel miserable.
I am so saddened from hearing these stories, when just one event could change their lives forever. Where a few strong words, and the thought of a real better life, could put them on the path of happiness and fulfilment.
I have always had projects of passion on the go. As well as the dead end jobs I do to pay the bills. Never has meaningless work taken over my life or been my life.
There is hope. You need to explore the possibilities and make things happen. Pursue your interests, get a hobby, find your passion and go for it!
